How to make a flatlay 

Finally I feel fit to explain y’all how to make a flatlay. It’s one of the most rewarding photography skills for instagram and I’ll show you exectly how to do it!

Tell a story 

When I look at your flatlay I should know what you are doing. Are you reading, painting, doing your makeup…. Share it! Take out all the products you are using.

The serfous

Choose the serfous according to make your products stand out. If your products are light make them pop by using a dark background. If you don’t really want the product to be in the front and center. You can use a light serfous. Opposite this works too of course.

It’s always easiest to chose a flat serfous, even grass, floors… will work.

The style 


You can make a minimal flatlay. In this flatlay you will use as little products as possible. Empty spaces are a must to nail this one!


Get as much as you can in the frame. Try to use products with different sizes to get a depth of feel. Use every ich you can. Make it interesting.

4. Visibility 

Make every product you are showing visable to get your point across. This is good lighting and a good camera. Honestly the lighting is more important then the camera. 

I’ve been using an iPhone 5 to take pictures for a long time. I actually started my blog with my iPhone 5. But I learned to understand lighting and taking picture here are my tips

  • No direct sunlight 
  • No artificial light 
  • Make your flatlay buy the window
  • Different angles
